Education Mental Health Practitioner (EMHP) Lecturer (full and part-time considered)
Ref: ATS1113

£34,304 to £40,927 per annum, pro rata for part-time

We are appointing to the post of Education Mental Health Practitioner (EMHP) Lecturer. The post holder(s) will form part of an expanding and dynamic team delivering the EMHP Trainee and Supervisor programmes at UEA.

EMHP training is a 12 month Graduate/Postgraduate Diploma, which involves employment within a Mental Health Support Team (MHST) with University teaching, self-directed learning and assignments. Following a national curriculum, EMHPs are trained to deliver evidence-based low intensity CBT for children and young people who have mild to moderate mental health problems, along with emotional health promotion, group work, and consultation to support education staff. 

The EMHP Supervisor Course is a complementary programme for MHST staff directly supervising EMHPs. Following a national curriculum the course teaches the core principles of supervision for low-intensity practitioners across the spectrum of EMHP work. We will be moving from delivery as CPD to a Supervisor Postgraduate Certificate from 2023.
EMHP is part of the UEA Department of Clinical Psychology & Psychological Therapies (CPPT) within Norwich Medical School. Other CPPT training programmes include low-intensity (PWP) and high-intensity (HIT) IAPT programmes, the Clinical Associate Psychologist (CAP) programme and the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. CPPT is a fast-growing and innovative department so new staff will join a Department that continues to develop and increase its impact. The post holder would be able to draw on expertise from a range of colleagues, as well as established relationships with regional/national service, HEI and education stakeholders. 

The post is open to clinicians who have relevant experience in the delivery of low intensity CBT, in child/youth/adult clinical services. We particularly welcome applications from those with a formal low intensity CBT qualification, and those with experience of delivering low intensity CBT supervision. The post holder would be expected to support the development and delivery of EMHP Trainee and Supervisor programme module content, teaching, and assessment processes. A strong understanding of low intensity evidence-based practice in child and adolescent mental health, and the practical delivery of evidence-based low intensity CBT interventions is expected.  


The total FTE can be appointed to flexibly, so there is the option of part-time roles around clinical work or other commitments.  The post is available immediately on an indefinite basis and will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check.  

We strongly encourage applicants from minority ethnic backgrounds and welcome applications from all protected groups as defined by the Equality Act 2010.  Appointment will be made on merit.

We very much invite and welcome informal enquiries prior to application. Please see further particulars for more information and contact details.

Closing date: 4 April 2022.

The University is committed to diversifying its workforce. As examples, we already hold an Athena SWAN Silver Institutional Award in recognition of our advancement towards gender equality. We also have a Vice-Chancellor led Taskforce on Tackling Racism and a Race Equality Charter Working Group which support our work on race equality. Our aim is to submit to the Race Equality Charter in 2024.
